On Monday night, we'll find out who will pick first overall in the 2020 NHL Draft. Here's everything you need to know about the second phase of the draft lottery, and why one is necessary ⤵️

And now, of course, we have the Toronto Maple Leafs, who will be facing many off-season questions about the roster’s make up. If they were to land Lafreniere to add to the wing, does it make it any more likely that William Nylander or even Mitch Marner could be dealt?

The wild thing about how this ended up shaking out is that Lafreniere will likely land on a pretty good team. There’s a 50 per cent chance he’ll go to Edmonton, Pittsburgh, Toronto or Winnipeg. In Winnipeg, there are visions of him joining Mark Scheifele, or playing opposite Patrik Laine. In Nashville, he would join a top-six that looks good on paper, but was generally disappointing this season. Still, with the Preds’ strong defence and overall team depth, a player like Lafreniere could quickly get them back on track. Even the New York Rangers seem primed to break out in a big way before long. Put Lafreniere there and it could happen as soon as 2020-21.

Fellow forwards Quinton Byfield and Tim Stutzle also have franchise-player potential themselves, while this class’s strongest skater, Jamie Drysdale, looks likely to be the first defender off the board. If Monday night’s lottery winner does not pick Lafreniere — after a 35-goal, 112-point season in 52 games — it would be a shock.If all goes smoothly and according to plan, the draft is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 9-10 and will be a virtual event.

Second phase of NHL draft lottery set for MondayEach club eliminated during the NHL's play-in round will have a 12.5 per cent chance of picking first in the next NHL draft. This is a crock of crap. The worse team deserves the number 1 pick regardless. If a team tanks to get the pick, oh well. All teams outside the playoffs should have a shot. But the way they did this with perennial playoff teams having a shot to get him is ridiculous. It’s already fixed
